Today is the start of a brand new challenge over at the Papercraft Business Challenge blog. This month’s theme is ‘Winter Animal’ and it’s perfect for me, because I have an embarrassingly large collection of animals of the winter and holiday variety. Guilty! If you submit a project for this month’s challenge, you could win a prize – the Winter Alpaca stamp set I featured in my card today.
I absolutely adore this stamp set – it’s been in my collections since it came out – how could I resist!? All you have to do to be entered to win is enter a card in the monthly challenge – you do get an extra entry if your project matches the theme!
To make this card, I started off by cutting a circle from a piece of cardstock. I used one of the stitched circle dies from My Favorite Things for this. I used the scraps (the circle cutout) to make my hills, too! No wasted paper here. 🙂
I stamped out my cute images from Winter Village by Lawn Fawn. I colored them using Copic markers and added a little shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen on the snowy rooftops. I placed everything how I wanted it and then used Matte Multi Medium to adhere them. I also backed these pieces with a piece of vellum. This will serve as my shaker window!
I did some very basic ink blending on a separate piece of cardstock using Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves. I flipped my card front over and double layered foam tape so the shaker bits would have room to move around. Then, I dumped in my shaker elements and I adhered the ink blended panel to the back of my card front. This way, you can see the muted ink blended background and the shaker bits floating around, but it has a bit of a frosted look. Perfect for a winter scene!
To finish off the front of my card, I colored up the Winter Alpaca, stamped the sentiment, and ink blended ink Wilted Violet. I trimmed my sentiment strips down and added some purple sequins for a finishing touch!
I hope you love the card and that you’re inspired to try a vellum shaker card this holiday season. Have you done one before?
Hugs and love to you all,
